Here it is, the second album of Berlin based electro pop artist Lie Craze, five years after the release of her positive reviewed debut album "Never Played With The Cool Kids" in 2009. Lie Craze's music has often been described as both catchy and honest, musically and lyrically. "Lyrics are very important to me. When I hear a catchy pop tune but the lyrics are just that same outworn sentence about love or la la la all the time I get really upset over the waste of a good...

Acoustic and folk instruments (or at least samples of them) weave and intertwine simple melodies and harmonies, delays build, and cavernous echoes rebound.

This debut EP from 3dtorus buzzes with classic analogue synthesis and acid squelches, but takes them in a very different direction.

Berlin based electropop artist Lie Craze released her debut album 'Never Played With The Cool Kids' in 2009 and her last single and video 'Oh Dare You' almost exactly three years ago. This summer her second album is going to be put out eventually with the first single 'GAS/GAD' released on Fwonk*. GAS/GAD is a bit different from the songs I did on the first album. I usually use a lot of acoustic instruments and a melodic, unaffected vocal line. GAS/GAD is purely electronic with fragmented... Topics: electronic, techno, dance, electropop, electro, electronica

Over twelve months, twelve Fwonk* artists were put to the test in this experimental single-track album based on the popular children's 'Telephone Game'. In their chosen month, each artist used only the last few measures of the previous month's track as a foundation for their own interpretation on the theme. The result is a metamorphosis in sound, with often only seeds of previously recognised audio being discernible. Just like the actual game, the first and final tracks could not be further...

Bachelor Machines - one of the founding member of the Fwonk* roster - swaps his normal tracker based techno, for something altogether different. This is a 68 minute album of sheer ambient bliss, with beautifully constructed and layered pads, drone and effected acoustic passages. The album is comprised of 3 movements - two epic 30 minute ambient symphonies of sound, followed by an 8 minute coda. This is an exquisite album, one to wrap yourself in, lose yourself and watch time shift out of... Topics: ambient, drone, soundscapes, dark ambient, ethereal, minimal, epic

Errorhythm's first release is a culmination of the last 2 or 3 years of their live sets and bedroom noodlings. Mostly what they describe as "the more successful" of their experiments in both working on electronic music, and also of working together. Bohemian in terms of genre - but made cohesive in general feel and mood - it dabbles in dubstep, industrial and lo-fi electronica, but all clearly stamped with their unique style.

The basic ideas for "Lovers" had been fostering for months, coming on the heels of last year's full-length album, "Feeding Lions".

'Mind Insert' was chosen as the single for the simple reason that I found it to be the catchiest track of all 11 I produced to be released as the album 'Rain (On Your Charade)'. To me it is as well a good example for why I think the whole album to be Post Techno. It definitely is techno if you look/listen at each element solitary – but together they do not appear as Techno. Yes, I have quite a strict idea what Techno is and what it sounds like, which is mainly because I experienced it during...

poppy nogood produced these four ambient tracks using voice, guitar, bass, drums and violin, recorded through a laptop and Ableton Live.

high dart went part way back to the roots and part way to space. The sound of 809 is spacey-rough, trippy and sometimes there's a little glint of well-camouflaged cheesiness. and guitars! while the LP emerged, a lot of synths were oscillating. what else should they have done? So, 809 is a four dimensional object. To us nothing but a lot of time slices. It can be seen as a tram that takes you down a 40 minute long route through 11 zones inside the abstract.

Andrulian has created something special with The Girl With The Long Flowing Hair. All sound elements were initially forged using the Virtual ANS software synthesiser that analyses images into microtonal sound. All sounds were derived from the one image, by Laura Woermke. This was then tweaked, manipulated and arranged using the Hollyhock II DAW, using granulation, looping, generative rhythms. The end result is an album that defies categorisation - it is a hugely daring piece of deconstructed...

Six years since the Viejos Hombres first landed with a blizzard of distortion, they are back. This is a soundtrack for our current dystopia.

Mixing in the original album’s swirl of ambience and noise, this new EP throws in influences ranging from My Bloody Valentine through The Orb to Fuck Buttons.
